I'd gladly pay $250 for better color, more resolution, and 25fps.

By the way, I hope it was obvious I was only poking fun.
Just pointing out that while we may have rebates, you have
advantages over there as well.

"Why didn't you lot adopt our system instead of NTSC? - It's not OUR fault?"

Because our electricity runs on 60hz instead of 50hz.
And heaven forbid our video isn't compliant with circa 1950's black and white television sets.
:)

And it's not our fault you don't get rebates.

Don't for get "<Country or continent of your choice> Idol" came from the UK, right?

As for the rebates, it seems like there's a bit of a pattern.
It sounds like the contractor that was retained by Canon for last year's (and maybe the beginning of this year's) rebates wasn't really doing a very good job of it and now Canon has addressed the issue in some way. The latest round of US, GL2 buyers do not seem to be experiencing the turnaround issues that plagued the system last year. That sounds like a good thing. :)

Have fun.

I purchased my GL-2 on May 19, sent in the rebate form on June 6 or so, and the rebate arrived in the mail today, July 2. I was pleased and surprised to find that the check came in an envelope, and not one of those junk mail-like postcards.

I didn't need to call about it, and wasn't planning to until at least mid-August! Now I am just waiting for a whole bunch of piddly rebates from my new DV-editing PC, which I built in early May. As soon as the rebates come for the measly 512 MB of memory I purchased, I will buy more, as I didn't get nearly enough!

A happy camper!

Well, for some good news, I got my $250 about a month ago.
It took them a good 5 or 6 months, but I got it.

Got my rebate yesterday.

Less than 30 days from my purchase of my GL2.

Came in an envelope as well, regular rebate check style.

GL2 Rebate

For anyone's information:

After receiving my GL2 in late June 04, I sent the rqquired documentation by certified mail, and received an email confirmation of qualification within a week. Ten days later, I got the check in an envelope. Total elapsed time, about 3 weeks. I felt that was better than expected.

I do believe!

I sent my rebate on June 29 and received an e-mail notification of the rebate being processed on July 15. I just received my rebate check today! The check came in an envelope that does look like JUNK mail.

I'm very pleased with the whole process that took just over 3 weeks. Now I can spend it on my accessories!
